Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 56
"Beautiful and bewitching artist. Those flowers are emblems of thyself. The pure and unspotted lilly, in luxuriant contrast with the lovely, blooming, full blown, fascinating rose, invites the enchanted beholder to banquet on the grateful sensations they are suited to produce." [P. 301; Gottesman adds in footnote:] "Miss Anne Hall received instruc- tions from Alexander Robertson, 'with these (materials for painting) she used to imitate nature; and few of the beautiful flowers, birds, fishes, or insects, which inhabited the neigh- boring woods and streams, escaped the eye or the pencil of the young artist.' - Dunlap, History of the Rise and Progress of the Arts of Design in the United States (1834), II, 368. Maybe the above 'bewitching artist' was Anne Hall." [P. 301-02.]
New-York, April 6, 1802. Columbian Gallery. At the Pantheon, No. 80, Greenwich-Street, near the Battery.
